Breath of the Wild (God of War is a very close second).

It’s Skyrim with Zelda mechanics. It’s a breathtaking exquisite beautiful game, it’s perfect for playing right now in a pandemic quarantine, and it’s the game I will most fondly recall from gen 8.

Still Breath of the Wild ... so many hours of joy and so many moments of geuine awe.

On a close second i put Dark Souls 3 ... yeah, i actually liked it more than Bloodborne because of the lore, the setting, the music and the boss battles (Gael FTW!!!) ... another one of my favorites this gen was Horizon ... but this could change since i'm about to get Spiderman, is really cheap on the PSN right now.

Hmmm tough cookie. I guess Zero Escape 3 so far, but I’m so far behind that I really don’t know.

Titanfall 1, not the sequel that ruined the multiplayer.

The whole generations thing is abit confusing when you throw Switch into the mix, but the best game I've played is Super Mario Odyssey.

Hmm, my taste ranges too much to settle with one.

Enjoyed and praised a lot of games far too different from each other to put in direct competition for a single slot.

The only game from the above lists I would consider within maybe a top twenty_ is Dark Souls III.

For me, a one best game isn't feasible. Also a little surprised how easy it is for some on this board.

Too difficult to pick just one so my top five, in no particular order, are:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Devil May Cry 5
  • Resident Evil 2 Remake
  • Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Sonic Mania Plus. It's everything I had been wanting since I got my Saturn in 1995.

Won't lie, Sonic: Mania would crack a top twenty for me, it is simply my favorite 2D Platformer since Tropical Freeze (which is Gen7).

On a different note. Not long now till we get our Bare Knuckles on the retro field either, got the steel case edition in excitement.

SEGA is doing good right now with the old licences. Hopefully they follow-up with a Golden Axe; could really go for a multiplatform port of Revenge of Death Adder.

A Nights or Alex the Kidd would also be welcome.

I’d probably say Mario Odyssey. At least that’s the first game that comes to mind.

Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey or Bloodborne

MP - Titanfall 1 or Overwatch

There are so many games I have not played yet though, so this could definitely change.

I'd say TLOU on PS4 even though it was on PS3. Other than that, GTA5.

XCOM 2, Zelda BOTW, Bloodborne, all fantastic, all free of those little annoyances many of today's games have. Not flawless but the closest thing to it from Gen 8.

If I’m being honest the game I’ve played and liked the most this gen is Assassin’s Creed: Origins. It was too good at the time. Sure the game has many flaws, but the overall package was very addictive.

The ”best” game I’ve played I think is God of War. Quality through and through. Excellent reboot.

@Renegade_Fury:

I was impressed with Sonic Mania felt like a sequel to the Genesis games and Sonic CD.

@madsnakehhh: I agree with DS3 being the best From game of the gen.

Takes the best ideas from BB and merges them with the DS series more flexible gameplay and imo more interesting world

Mass Effect Andromeda - I am a huge Sci-Fi nerd and this game was amazing. From the SciFi themes to the combat. I enjoyed every aspect.

I'd have to agree with all the BotW comments. The mechanics and systems in that game are just amazing. I don't think I've ever played a game that did such a good job of establishing a set of rules for the world and then letting you apply those rules in pretty much any way you can think of. People are still figuring out new stuff in that game years after its release.

I'd also agree with Horizon Zero Dawn. I just replayed that with my kids and I had forgotten how great that game is. A terrific sci-fi story with some very dynamic combat. In a game where you spent a lot of time shooting robots to grind for resources the combat amazingly never gets old. Even having gone back and recently replayed the entire story and the DLC I kind of still want to go back and 100% the side activities because it's just that much fun to play.

In terms of games that really "stuck" with me though, The Last of Us was probably the most impactful. Great story experience, but at the same time it's not like I'm looking to go back and play through that game again.

Above everything else, I'd have to put Bloodborne as my #1, with Witcher 3 being a very VERY close #2. Having said that, I have put more hours into Destiny 2 than any other game so that has to be mentioned.

@RSM-HQ: same. I can't pick one or do these kind of lists. I like all genres and there's just too much to love out there. Just going by my gut, the "favorite" changes with my mood
